- and the name of the dictator is MIMAC - the Military-Industrial-Media-Academic Complex.

This piece of CNN news about Pentagon's new stratgey and budget is enough of a proof of the galloping perversity.

The world's 6,1 billion people should rise as one in protest and the U.S. be the object of sanctions if Pentagon's new world-threatening strategy and killing budget goes through!

If you had hopes about President Obama's "change" you underestimated the structures that have the capacity to make him a puppet on a string.

The U.S. itself - with bankrupt economy, hatred around the world, addicted to military violence and unable to see that its MIMAC is the main cause of the malaise - obviously cannot save itself. It needs the rest of the world, all its friends and it needs to re-invent democracy in the face of its dictatorial MIMAC.

Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the world in 1961.

To paraphrase the old Uncle Sam poster - America needs you! It needs us to save itself.

It's time for a worldwide, nonviolent confrontational movement with the U.S. MIMAC. Before it drags the whole world down into apocalypse.

In a brilliant article by Tom Engelhardt - about the Pentagon as a coup maker in politics - that I was not aware of when I wrote the above, the author points ut that President Obama has frozen all other items on the U.S. budget. The only one that is boosted beyond sanity is - again - the military.

See Carl Conetta, Trillions to Burn. A Quick Guide to the Surge in ... is the shortest, most comprehensive analysis of President Obama's budget in the light of his predecessors...The truth is mind-boggling. By

The CNN news item you refer to says: "Preparing the U.S. military to fight two major conventional wars is "out of date" and does not reflect the numerous challenges U.S. military forces could face in the future, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Monday....He said the military needs to start planning for multiple operations such as major disasters in the United States and various scuffles around the planet."

How does that make the USA a dictatorship? And how can the sprawling network of politicians, generals, arms manufacturers, university professors and journalists that you call MIMAC be a 'dictator'?

Hi Friend! Thanks for this blog piece. The subtlety of the neo-fascist dictatorship is surely so deceptive. Will note this blog.
